Brandin Cooks, Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans
Many fantasy owners holding Texans players are hoping that the head coaching change will help liberate their players. Last week against Jacksonville, the Texans passed all over the field and Cooks had a huge day, scoring his first touchdown of the season while being an integral part in establishing a rhythm for Deshaun Watson. His Week 5 performance in many ways surpassed what he did in his first four games.
Cooks’ owners should feel very confident starting Cooks against the Titans who were recently picked apart by the Bills Stefon Diggs (10/106/0) and Vikings rookie receiver Justin Jefferson (7/175/1). Even Keelan Cole had a similar box score of 6/58/1 against the Titans. Will Fuller will do his damage on the outside edge, while Cooks carves them up in the middle.
